IEEE CIR: Artificial versus Natural Intelligence

Share

In this presentation, Dr Haluk Ogmen will provide a brief overview of the history of studies of intelligence and mind from a multi-disciplinary angle, including philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, and cognitive science perspectives. we will also discuss parallel efforts to build artificial intelligence systems and trace their relationships to the studies of natural intelligence. Dr Ogmen primary argument will support that, if artificial intelligence is to be more like human intelligence, it needs to abandon its aprioristic or empiristic bases and instead adopt a constructivistic approach following the stages of cognitive development in infants. This presentation is going to be a cutting edge venture into AI, artificial thought, and cognition – we hope to see you there.
